It should be kept in mind that we asked for publications in English and therefore approaches by Latin American and French speaking scholars are under-represented.
The Delphi method is an iterative process through which expert opinions are refined through several rounds of feedbacks. The goal is to show consensus and dissent on a given question. An important aspect is that expert inputs are anonymous. This anonymity is to focus on the message rather than on the messenger to prevent opinion leaders from overtaking the discussion.
